Woodstock was The Who's biggest performance since the release of their groundbreaking rock opera Tommy. Their 24-song set began around 3:00 a.m. and included many songs from Tommy as well as "I Can't Explain," "Shakin' All Over," and "My Generation." At the conclusion of their set, Pete Townshend slammed his guitar into the stage and threw it into the crowd.
Drummer Keith Moon died in 1978 from a prescription drug overdose, and the group officially disbanded in 1983 but have reunited for various events and tours over the years. In 1990, The Who were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and in 2006 founding members Townshend and Roger Daltrey released Endless Wire and returned to touring.
